1.29 for 20oz - should be under a dollar - someone is trying to make money :) nice display too bad half of it will probably get expired. this from a pepsi guy who thinks gamefuel isnt selling well at all.

really? i actually think its selling GREAT, probably the best out of all of the new limited edition Dews, and plus, it does even better considering it attracts Halo fans, die hard fans would buy it just to have the label lol.

Yep ive found it for 88 cents at a few places, my CVS used to sell it for a buck (20 Oz) and now its up to 1.49!

My local woodmans had a display about that size, maybe a little larger. They took it down though. They are known for their huge displays.

Vice nice, Pepsi loves to keep all their products at normal prices, promotional pricing is never big with Pepsi around here.

Here's a Game Fuel Football..

I have yet to order a second order anywhere on this product, and no I do not have any large displays or have it piled into the backrooms/ coolers. I ordered what would fit on the shelf, 1 case on 2 liters and 20 ounce, and enough to fill the shelf on 12 packs (generall 3 cases more or less depending on the store)

I would love to play jenga with that! lol.

I found this at Target, which had game Fuel basically scattered everywhere aorund the store. Its pretty small but at as long as they have one i guess. Sorry about the bad quality, i was moving when i took it.

Our target never has anything. It took them 6-7 months to get VAULT.

Target likes exclusive packages (we did 8 pack 12oz cans and 10 pack 12oz PET for them in years past), and they do some sampling of new items.. but otherwise they are slow to sell new items and their soda sections are generally ridiculously small. And the coolers they have at the registers are a big joke.

Game Fuel seems to be selling fairly well in the stores I work in. Pepsi has had some good ads lately (4/$10, 5/$10) and Game Fuel fridgemates are on every display. But then again, I work in a strong Dew area - a lot of c-stores get more Dew 20oz than Pepsi 20oz.. 2 to 1 in some!

I'm still waiting to see Game Fuel in 12 packs and 2 liter bottles in Vermont. So far all we have are the 20z bottles

Game Fuel seems to be doing well in Wal-Mart mainly due to promotional pricing at $2.50. We have been selling about 12-16 cases per day, but this is a huge dew area, I usually sell 6 cases of Dew 20oz versus 4 Pepsi on Sat/Sun. Other accounts its moving but nothing spectacular. Targets are supposed to have endcaps in the electronics department but it may vary by market.

i remember when it first came out at my local CVS, they only had 2 small racks of it, but my and bettyfizzw over here bought em al out within about 2 days, then we go in there a ferw days later and suprised to see 2 racks change into 3, plus another 3 in another cooler, the 2-liter shelf packed full of em, and 12 packs toppling over eachother, with another big area of 2 liter bottles (with the 20 Oz's marked with a special price of .99 cents) plus they put these little stilckers on the cooler with a picture of the game fuel logo and the halo 3 ad and it said "your time is limited" with the .99 cents special. So me and my friend continued to buy and buy as many as we could, but there starting to get a few less, but still alot none the less.

Any other workers at stores who know how its selling?
